A few weeks ago we went to visit Santa at Bass Pro shop. Olive had been talking about it for weeks and had said she was going to sit on Santa's lap and talk to him to tell him what she wanted. As we approached him, her grip on my arms got tighter and tighter and her chin started to quiver. She did speak to him...which was a big improvement! She told him that she wanted a Foofa pet, doll house, a big doll like in the magazine and an outfit to match the doll. Not the best picture, but we were proud she talked to him. Maybe next year she will sit on his lap!
Stephen and I were married in December of 2004. We met through a very persistent friend who insisted that if we met, we would get married. Sure enough, he was right and 7 months later we said I do! In the years since, we have suffered great loss but are learning daily to rely on God and each other, knowing that we can rise to use tragedy for good! We welcomed Olive Kay into the world in August of 2009 and our lives haven't been the same since! She is a firecracker and makes every day worth waking up for! On her 3rd birthday, we found out we were going to be blessed with another little one. Nora Kate joined our family in April of 2013 and has brought even more joy into our lives! We can't wait for the adventures we will have with the two of them.
